The Mash Those Buttons Show #18: Devolver Direct 2020, Ubisoft Forward, and the New Rockstar Games

July 14th, 2020

We’re back after taking a week off! We discuss why we took a week off and how we are going to move going forward. We don’t spend too much time on that, and jump into Devolver Direct 2020 which wrapped up it’s multi-part story arch. They also surprised dropped Devolverland Expo, which may be a game changer and the next step in game marketing.

Ubisoft also did a digital conference, but it was a bit different than other; providing a deeper dive into their upcoming titles. Gave insight into how Watchdogs Legion will play, showed off the combat and stealth aspects of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and officially announced Farcry 6.

Ending the show, we talk about Rockstar Games of the 2000s and how they’ve changed. More importantly, is it for the better or worse?

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
